A 17-year-old boy was killed and a 22-year-old man was wounded in a shooting Tuesday afternoon in the South Deering neighborhood on the Far South Side.

They were walking west on 95th Street at 12:21 p.m. when two masked males got out of a black SUV heading south on Yates Avenue and opened fire, according to Chicago Police.

The shooters got back in the SUV and headed east on 95th Street after the shooting, police said.

Kaveon D. Anthoni Walton, who lived a few blocks away, was shot multiple times in the chest, right leg and right arm, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead at 1:32 p.m.

The 22-year-old was also shot repeatedly, and taken in critical condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
